Island of the Blue Dolphins by: Scott Odell story board by: Isla Garcia 10/16/2018
once we make a deal, we will take all the otter pelts for ourselfs
Wait! Come back!
An odd red object came toward Ghalas-at and from a distance it looked like a small shell afloat on sea, then it looked like a gull with folded wings, but as it got closer it turned out to be a ship with a red sail thought Karana. Karana would not dare to tell her brother Ramo.
Chief Chowig made a deal with Captain Orlov that if they hunt the otter, they will get have to give them half your catch. They both agreed on the deal. However, as Captain Orlov was leaving the island, Caption Orlov gave Chief Chowig a chest that had gold necklaces inside. He said that if he would have the chest, he would need three more chests this size. No said Caption Orlov. And with that, he killed Chief Chowig and a war began.
A ship comes to take the villagers to a safer place but as the villagers were running to the ship, Ramo realized that he forgot his fishing spear but Karana would not let him go back for it. When the villagers boarded the boat, Karana could not find Ramo. The ship started to move but Karana noticed Ramo still on the island holding his fishing spear. Karana begged to go back but the men would not go back. Many hands tried to hold her back, Karana dove of the boat to go to Ramo who was still on the island.
Ramo went to bring the canoe around the island, but as hours past, Karana started to get worried. Karana took one path to get to hidden boats, but as she was walking,she heard barks coming from the other path. When she got to to the barking, she saw the dogs circling RAMO!!! she rushed to him but he had scratches all over, Karana new he was dead. as the dogs left, she saw the last dog to leave. This must be the leader she thought.
Karana shot the leader down and went to shut down more, but when she got back, the leader was gone. Karana looked for the wolf over the next days and when she found the wolf on a rock. She held out her spear but she did not throw it. Karana took him home and helped him heal and she named him Rontu.
why didn't I throw my spear?
A girl came with the alutes and became friends with Karana. One day Rontu barked to go out but did not come back the next day. Karana got worried and went out to find him. When she found him and he was laying down. She could not carry him home so she she stayed with him until she got the strength. On the way back, she put him down and she told him to bark at the birds like he alwase did but he didn"t she felt his heart slowing down and finaly no beat. NO RONTU NO. Shouted Karana. After Rontu died Karana found Rontu's sun. Karana named him Rontu-Ar and they became best friends.
